Stainless Steel Percussion Colts

I am seeking the location of, and any information available on a line of stainless steel percussion revolvers made by Uberti and imported by Allen Firearms, Santa Fe, NM; Southwest Muzzleloaders Supply, Inc. Angleton, TX, Uberti USA, and possibly others in the early to mid '80s. Phil Spangenberger did an article about these stainless revolvers in the October 1983 issue of Guns and Ammo Magazine. According to the article, the models that were being imported were the 1851 Navy, 1860 Army, 1861 Navy, 1862 Pocket Navy, and 1862 Pocket police. Thanks to Dr. J.L. Davis of RPRCA, Claremore, OK, I have a 1984 price list for Uberti products that lists fourteen different models of Stainless Steel Colts produced by Uberti at that time. Subsequent price lists expanded the line to 16 models by adding 4 ? inch barreled Pocket Navy and Pocket Police. The complete model list, known so far, is:

1851 Navy, Oval Triggerguard Revolver, Cal. .36
1851 Navy Squareback Triggerguard Revolver, Cal. .36 *
1851 Navy "Sheriff's Model" Oval Triggerguard Revolver, Cal. .36 *
1851 Navy "Sheriff's Model" Squareback Triggerguard Revolver, Cal. .36
1860 Army Military, Cut For Stock, Cal. .44 *
1860 Army Military, With Fluted Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .44
1861 Navy Military, Cut For Stock, Revolver, Cal. .36 *
1861 Navy Civilian, Revolver, Cal. .36
1861 Navy Military, With Fluted Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36

1862 Police, Semi-Fluted Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36, Barrel 4 ?"
1862 Police, Semi-Fluted Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36, Barrel 5 ?"*
1862 Police, Semi-Fluted Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36, Barrel 6 ?"
1862 Pocket Navy, Engraved Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36, Barrel 4 ?"*
1862 Pocket Navy, Engraved Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36, Barrel 5 ?"*
1862 Pocket Navy, Engraved Cylinder, Revolver, Cal. .36, Barrel 6 ?"
(* - have identified location of examples of these models)


So far, I have two of these revolvers and know of fifteen others in hands of other collectors or BP shooters. Anyone with information concerning Allen Firearms, Southwest Muzzleloaders Supply or any other Uberti Stainless Steel Colt style revolvers is requested to contact [email protected]. I am seeking information as to models, manufacture dates, serial numbers, barrel markings, and any other characteristics as well as any catalog, brochure and original packaging information.

Of course, if anyone has any for sale, I would be interested in that also.
